Mangaluru, Jan 23, 2017: With the aim of motivating oneself for the second or third attempt for the civil services exam; a need for a coaching institute was considered. How one should choose optional subjects.

SP Borase, a 2009 batch IPS officer, said that he cleared the civil services in his fourth attempt.
“Be consistent and work hard in your preparation. This alone will take you through,” he said. “Moreover life does not come to an end with IAS and IPS,” SP Borase said.
A 2015 batch IAS Officer, said aspirants needed to enjoy the process of preparation for civil services. Knowledge gained during this period expands the horizon. The aspirant should choose the coaching institute that serves his or her needs. A 2014 batch IAS Officer, said that vernacular language does not in the way hinder in writing the exam or in the result.
